Abstract

We report a unique combination of PDA stent placement and occlusion of a persistent cavo-atrial connection in an adult with complex cyanotic congenital heart disease. The unusual anatomy and physiology with prior palliative surgery were amenable to catheterization intervention and have resulted in marked clinical improvement.
